PLEASE NOTE: 

1.  Some maps may be SLOW to LOAD, especially the larger maps.

2.  However, I have assumed that most viewers will be prepared to wait a little longer  to see a better quality image, rather than see a poor quality quickly.   I hope you find the wait worthwhile.  Once a large map appears, you should be able to scroll across it and up and down, using the scroll bars.
